Afternoon schlocky horror fans. Friday the 13th: The Game is out tomorrow on Steam, and handily developer Illfonic has compiled together a list of benchmark results so you can work your expected performance. Quite a variety of different specs and settings have been benchmarked in Friday the 13th, ranking from a humble Radeon HD 6850 + Intel Core 2 Duo E7300 combo all the way up to SLI GeForce GTX 970’s plus an Intel Core i7-6700.
Friday the 13th is, sadly, not out on Friday the 13th, but Friday the 26th. They've missed a trick there. Nevertheless, it's an asymmetric horror game in which seven players must attempt to survive against the wrath of Jason Voorhees. Jason is a legendary killer with an array of tracking skills and some absolutely brutal takedowns. All everyone else needs to do is survive the night in any way possible. Whilst you're getting your head slammed in a door, or being gutted in the log cabin, the last thing you're going to want to contend with is a dodgy frame rate. Here's a full range of benchmarks so you can hopefully pinpoint your expected performance in Friday the 13th.

Just bear in mind that these PC benchmark tests have come directly from the developer, so we can't independently confirm their veracity just yet. However, they are on the low side so it seems reasonable to assume Illfonic is being straight up with these results for Friday the 13th.
The first takeaway from this is that SLI and CrossFire support is practically non-existent for Friday the 13th. You may see minor gains, but nothing of that suggests this is optimised just yet.
Secondly, Friday the 13th is a pretty demanding game, at least at higher graphics settings. If your graphics card is one that sits below 60 frames per second, you can roughly double your frame rate by dropping to the low preset.
